If you are planning your wedding there are many decisions that you will have to make along the way, including the flower arrangements. By planning ahead, you can ensure that you and your guests are pleased with the presentation. These suggestions will provide an excellent place for you to begin your research.
The first thing to consider is the season in which you are getting married. Choosing seasonal flowers will save you some cash in most cases, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have special ones brought in from nurseries and farms. Do you and your beloved have a preference for a certain type of flower from an exotic locale, perhaps a special place for the two of you?
If you really want certain flowers but have budget restrictions, talk to your florist about how you might be able to incorporate them into a collection that includes more affordable choices. If the flowers are powerful enough to catch the human eye, this could be a great way to use your favorite large bright flowers without breaking your budget.
Of course, you will need to have a floral theme for your wedding that goes well with the rest of your plans. Don’t get too specific with your floral choices until you have established the colors for the wedding. Otherwise you will be stuck creating your theme around the flowers, making it difficult to change your mind. Make sure that the concerned parties all agree on the colors and party theme early in the planning stages.
While bouquets and boutonnieres are an essential aspect of your floral plans, that is only one part of the flower presentations on your big day. The wedding and reception halls will also need to have appropriate flower arrangements throughout the help keep the area festive.
The number and size of your wedding flower choices will depend on multiple factors, including how formal the event and the amount of guests. If you are having a buffet reception then you might opt for different table centerpieces and accents than if you have a seated affair.
These suggestions are a great place for you to begin your research into wedding flower choices. Knowing your colors and themes will help you when selecting the flowers and arrangements that you are going to use for your big day. Have fun making your selections!
